Morgan Faith Keane, 8, Orofino
Morgan Faith Keane was granted her perfect heart on March 17, 2012 at Sacred Heart Children's Hospital in the arms of her mother and father. Morgan was born on April 14, 2003 with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and courageously fought through open heart surgeries and lengthy hospitalizations.
Morgan's life would seem short to many, but for those who were touched by her, understood that the quality of existence far exceeds quantity of time in which you live it. Her contagious smile and sparkling eyes could melt the hearts of those around her and though she was small in size she had a big voice.
She possessed strength, perseverance, and the ability to overcome incredible odds and physical challenges. Her courage led us to believe that each day is a blessing and an opportunity to create lasting memories. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She looked forward to swimming and boating in the summer, roasting hot dogs and trick or treating in the fall, making snowmen and sledding in the winter, stomping puddles and celebrating her birthday in the spring.
Morgan loved animals of any kind, but had a special spot in her heart for cats, especially tigers. She was an amazing artist, loved school and was eager to learn. She was very proud of her Honor Roll ribbon she earned for the 2nd Quarter of 3rd grade. She admired her older brother, Braeden and was a proud big sister to Danica and Macy.
Morgan is survived by her loving parents, Dan and Angela (Marvin) Keane; brother Braeden; and sisters Danica and Macy, all of Orofino. She is also survived by paternal grandparents, Peter and Karen Keane, Centreville, VA; maternal grandparents, Chris and Susie Marvin, Orofino, and Tyler and Rosanna Kanetake, Kaneohe, HI.
Also surviving are: great-grandparents, Charles and Florence Ricci, Pompano Beach, FL; Alice Maybury, East Longmeadow, MA; Homer and Barbara Marvin; Darlene Anderst; and Sandy Davis, all of Lewiston; aunts Nicole (Justin) Louchart, Lewiston; Stephanie Daniel, Centreville, VA; Heather Gillespie, Portsmouth, VA; uncles, Aaron Marvin, Whitefish, MT; Matt (Angela) Keane, Washington, DC; cousins Grady Louchart and Taylor Keane. Morgan also leaves behind an extensive medical team, too numerous to mention, that provided Morgan with love and dignity in her life and also in her death.
She was preceded in death by her beloved cat, Lucy.
There will be a celebration of her life Saturday, March 24, 2012 at 1 p.m. in the Orofino High School gym. A potluck will follow at the National Guard Armory, Orofino. At the request of her sister, Danica, we invite you to wear pink, Morgan's favorite color.
